Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes a decision over signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decided against pursuing a deal for Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the summer according to the Standard.

The Gunners striker will be a free agent at the end of next season, and Arsenal will probably have to sell him in the summer if they cannot agree on a new deal with last seasons Golden Boot winner.

The report reveals that Mikel Arteta’s side is negotiating a new deal with the 30-year-old, but they are struggling to agree on a weekly salary as Aubameyang is looking for £300k per week to sign a new contract.

Reports have also linked him with a move to several top teams in recent months with the likes of Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United all looking to sign him.

However, United have been his major suitors in England and the Red Devils have a history of buying Arsenal’s best players.

In the past, they have signed Alexis Sanchez and Robin van Persie, but they won’t pursue their interest in Aubameyang.

Standard Sports claims that a striker is high on the list of priorities for United ahead of the summer, but they will focus their attention on landing their other targets.

This should hopefully come as a boost to Arsenal, who will pray that Aubameyang will finally sign a new deal.

    We need Auba and that’s it. He deserves the big contract and he is our Captain plus a massive fans favourite off and on the pitch.

    If anyone is to go it has to be Lacazette unfortunately as much as I like him but he will get funds in, save wages to give Auba and Martinelli can fill that void left by Laca. Athletico interested again as Diego Costa could be leaving them again.
    (Or a swap for Partey)

    Il take a swipe here and say Saka will be LW once Teirney is back and fit plus Kolasnic is there for back up for LB.
    Pepe, Saka, Martinelli can play on wings and let Auba do the business up top with Mesut pulling the strings as this will be his last season at Arsenal and will walk away on a free so Arteta will get the best out of him until then. The signs are already there and no point of his talents on the bench when we need his vision with the ball, he has hat touch of class the rest dont.

    Again Sokratis, Mustafi and Miki may all leave to bring in funds, save wages and Saliba can replace the two with Mavraponas & Holding returning also.

    Again all speculation but Arsenal are okay going forward and we have the right boss in my opinion to do so!
